Gammeltag

Yesterday was a Gammeltag!!

I spent the day in my PJs and putzed around not doing much. I didn't run any errands. I didn't clean the house. I just laid around and watched Christmas movies and read my book.

I actually did this because I was sick. So it was technically a sick day. Though I thought we could still take the opportunity to learn a new word.

der Gammeltag - a day where one does not go to work or does not do house work, but lays around and relaxes.

gammeln - to rot or spoil (as in food); to pass your time without a steady job, without a goal; or to waste your time, dilly dally.
